Over the years women have fought long and hard to be able to obtain and maintain legal rights and privileges that the male gender is born into. Females were molded and primed to play the part as an obedient wife and mother with instruction that your thoughts and opinions are kept to yourself. The perseverance of brave women helped today’s generation of women such as myself have the same equal rights as that of men. With all things you must have a burning passion in the pit of your belly to want to advance and defeat the injustice of this world. In order to put laws into effect there must be a group of people who all agree that new laws should be implemented because of majority vote.

Monica Gonzalez Religious Studies Professor: Matthew Bingley Women & Tradition Throughout the history of religion, women always carried some kind of role in the tradition of that religion, whether restrictive or liberal. In many of the religions practiced today, women had somewhat of a restricted role, since many religions are seen still today as patriarchal. In monotheistic tradition, whether it be Judaism, Christianity, or Islamic, women were looked at as heroines in some cases, leaders in some scriptures, and intellectuals. However, women were also under restrictive rules, seen as inferior to men in these traditions, even when they are to be seen as equal to men. Before Jewish tradition though, when polytheistic religions were more
Describe the evolutionary approach to explain parental investment in humans; sex differences, parent-offspring conflict. Firstly females’ initial investment is far greater than that of males. This is because the eggs of a female are less numerous and more costly physiologically to produce then male sperm. Furthermore a female can only produce a limited number of offspring where as men can produce virtually an unlimited amount. Males and females both compete for different things; males want quantity so they can increase the size of their gene pool whereas females want quality in their males and them to provide good resources.
The common perception of marriage is that it was originally weighted heavily in favour of the male member of the couple, and that this has shifted slowly to a more even-handed arrangement in recent years. This essay will examine the question of how accurate this belief really is. Historically, marriage was highly unequal. While the husband took the role of breadwinner and went out to earn the necessary money to support the family, his wife was expected to stay at home and look after the more mundane tasks that make up the day-to-day running of a household. As the former role was commonly seen as more valuable than the latter, this often meant that the husband held most of the power, such as deciding where they would live, how resources were distributed, etc.
The words of her father while on his deathbed seems to be what I felt Barton lived by in her life; “As a Patriot he bade serve my country with all I had, even my life if need be; as the daughter of an accepted Mason, he bad me seek and comfort the afflicted everywhere, and as a Christian he charged me to honor God and love mankind”. She of course had her faults as everyone does, but they did not always have bad effects. While she was not keen with others surpassing her, it helped her to also go farther than she would have most likely imagined. By standards of today’s idea of Christianity, it would depend on how you look at it. She accomplished a great deal of good in the United States, and in the world itself, but is the question would be if what she did was good enough to

Throughout the ages marriage has been considered to be a sacred ritual between a man and a woman. Whether or not the couple has a successful marriage is up to them, of course success is in the eye of the beholder. While some might see a marriage as a disaster, other people might view it as a passable union. Before two hundred years ago marriages in society were mainly arranged by parents, or simply business arrangements. Love was a commodity that was only allowed to the lower classes of society.
All married men were single at one point in time. However, this changed mostly due to the growing up of individuals into fully-fledged responsible adults. Love is one of the major things, which contributes to marriage. Love or affection to the opposite sex is something common to both the married and unmarried men, and the actual process of feeling love towards the other sex usually starts at an early age in the human development, usually at puberty. The major differences between married men and unmarried men are the age bracket.
